I can’t believe I’m on my 8th day! I haven’t eaten anything solid for 8 days. I start my day with a cup of laxative tea and as I steep my bag of Senna Tea I began to wonder about the availability of local ingredients for my spicy lemonade. Particularly the availability of maple syrup and the lack of sugarcane juice. Here I am indulging in imported and expensive maple syrup because I can’t find sugarcane in a country full of sugarcane plantations. Fresh sugarcane juice is full of nutrients and is a refreshing, delicious drink. I would really like to see a sugercane juice stand in my neighborhood grocery…
Here is a nutritional analysis for 100 ml of sugarcane juice.
Glucose 7 Fructose: 0.5-1.0%
Amino acids: 40-100mg
Phenolic acids: 100-300mg
